Wix Pro Gallery: Managing Your Gallery

5 min read
The Wix Pro Gallery allows you to showcase multimedia content all in one place. With this gallery, you can easily reorder gallery items and duplicate / copy galleries onto the same or different pages. We also make it easy for you to manage the social and interactive settings of your gallery, such as the heart and download icons.
In this article, learn more about:

Allow visitors to download gallery items by enabling the Download toggle in your Pro Gallery settings. A download icon appears on each individual item upon hovering. Visitors can download your original images but not Free Wix media.

To enable downloading of images in the Wix Pro Gallery:

  1. Click the Wix Pro Gallery in your editor.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Click the Settings tab.
  4. Click the Download toggle to enable it.

Pro Gallery has a built-in Right Click Protect feature on desktop, so it's not possible to save images added to your Pro Gallery with a right click.

Save yourself time and duplicate your Pro Gallery onto the same page, or copy and paste it onto a different page of your site. The gallery's content and settings are carried over onto the duplicate.

To duplicate a gallery:

  1. Click your gallery in your editor.
  2. Right-click on the gallery and choose what you want to do:
    • Duplicate a gallery on the same page: 
      1. Click Duplicate.
      2. Drag the gallery to your preferred location.
    • Copy and paste a gallery elsewhere: 
      1. Click Copy.
      2. Navigate to the relevant page on your site.
      3. Right-click anywhere on the page and select Paste.

To reorder your gallery items:

  1. Click the Wix Pro Gallery in your editor.

You can also sort the images alphabetically by Image Title or File Name. Click the Arrange by icon and select an option. 

Track how many "likes" your images and videos are getting by adding a heart icon to media items in your Pro Gallery. This is a great way to see how your site visitors are responding to your content. The heart icon and counter both appear on your live site when you hover over an image in your gallery. 

To add a heart icon to your Pro Gallery images:

  1. Click the Wix Pro Gallery in your editor.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Click the Settings tab.
  4. Click the Heart icon toggle to enable it. 
  5. Click Show with counter to enable the "likes" counter.
